Tomorrow’s Yesterday Is Today - Poem by Obed Akuma

Personally am longing for that a tomorrow when all the mishaps of today will be yesterday’s (no more) . What about you?

To live is to live today
To die is to die yesterday
To prosper is to prosper tomorrow
For tomorrow’s yesterday is today

Live when you breathe today
Live in the one who breathed
To you to live today
For to live is to breathe His spirit breathed

For to live is to do His will
For to live is to obey to breathe
His breath in you
So let His will your breath be
For to live is to live today

Die when you breathe the last breath
Die in the one who breathed is last breath yesterday
For you to die yesterday but breathe again today
For His death is life tomorrow

For to die is to die to your will
For to die is to die His death
A yesterday’s death that blesses today’s tomorrow
For yesterday is gone, gone with its groans
For to die is to die yesterday

But to prosper is to prosper tomorrow
For tomorrow is promising
Promising to be bright and full of blessing
Blessing that sire prosperity unmeasuring

For to prosper is to gain
To gain His inheritance that to you will share
An eternal share that will last eternity main
An eternity main that is full of glory
For to prosper is to prosper in that tomorrow

That tomorrow when a glance backwards
Will confirm that yesterday is gone
Gone like smoke never to be
For tomorrow’s yesterday is today
